How do you pay for your TV License? Is it better with Direct Debit or just making a one off payment?
I pay by direct debit, means you don't really have to worry about it then. Can't recall if you get a slight discount for paying by DD.
Pay it in one lump sum, best to get it out of the way imo.
DD, though its really really easy to forget and then panic when you sudenly have less money than you think you should
Yeah I was wondering about that, but I don't think you do get discount with DD, it doesn't say anything about it on their website.
no, just pay it in 1 go. thats what i do.
Yeah just pay it all at once.
Lot easier that way.
this is assuming you have a TV plugged into the aerial
Otherwise . . .
Don't have to pay mine as we have an VERY OAP (93) living in the house and the license is in their name and therefore free!
I don't, I have NTL cable, so does this mean I don't have to pay?
I pay by DD, due to renting. Means I have control, and can cancel the DD whenever I want.
Paying in whole would then require asking for a re-imbursement.
I pay quarterly in arrears which is a pain as you have to pay about 4 months if I want to switch to monthly DD's
DD, at least this way all I have to worry about is sufficient funds are in the account, most of my bills are payed by dd
No it doesn't.
I pay it in one go.
I try and pay things by lump sum all though i messed upinsurance this year so had 2 pay in 4 lumps. Just means less monthly bills to worry if i have enough money.
I think you end up paying slightly more by DD - rather than all at once.
I'm sure that my quarterly DD is in advance - and that I pay more per year than I would do if I paid it all at once.
Oops, thanks for the reminder. Moved to a new pad but haven't bought one yet. I did attempt to do it online a few weeks ago but it all went a bit breats up, will try again tomorrow.
I paid it all it one go. Begining to wish I didn't, as I rarely watch tv (only have a pc+tv card at uni), and it doesn't look like there's ever going to be anyone checking lol.
I have a TV, but I only ever use it for playing on the Gamecube or watching DVDs. I don't have an aerial lead(although there is an aerial socket in my room(at uni)) and it's not tuned in.
Would I have anything to worry about if a TV Inspector came round? Do I need to pay for a license?
No you don't need a licence but it would be advisable to write to the TV licensing authorities and inform them
You may still get a visit but just show him the TV and he should go away happy.
Ok I will do, cheers for clearing that up for me
